Big future forecast for mini meat bites

09 November 2012

In a major expansion of its services to further manufacturers, fully cooked and
frozen meat products supplier, Snowbird foods, has unveiled two new
convenience products.

Mini Meat Bites, at around 4g each, are irregular tube shaped pieces of pork
beef, lamb, chicken or turkey – or selected combinations of the meats.

They have already been test marketed by international pizza and ready meals manufacturers and a technical breakthrough means Snowbird is now able to produce a half size version – cooked weight of the smaller bite is around 1.7g.

It has immediately proved attractive to wraps, sandwich, lunch box and snack pot manufacturers as well as pizza and ready meals companies and both products are
already selling as part of prepared products in one of the UK’s top five supermarkets.

Careful attention to colour has improved visibility of the bites when sprinkled on pizzas and the increased number of bites means flavour delivery is enhanced throughout entire products.

“International companies have been beating a path to our door to review these new ideas and we are confident this is going to become a pan European business for us,” said sales director, Roy Anderson.
